Nature vs Nurture

Throughout the studies that we watched in class, I interpreted the “Nature vs Nurture” debate as two components that form and affect humans. “Nature” is the base of humans which all differ depending on their genes. For example, humans can’t choose their own gender, height and all other things affected by their genes. However, “Nurture” is something where people influence others intentionally. In some cases, people forcefully push their own perspectives against others which result in both positives and negatives. For example in the Cambridge study, the scientists tested how adults react differently to babies depending on their gender. The adults offered pink and “girl” toys to the baby in the pink shirt and offered trucks and “boy” toys to the baby in the blue shirt. Adults offered toys that match their gender assuming their preference.
